    For a long time, I've felt strange.

    I never seem to feel emotions towards other people besides myself. I was emotionally abused when I was younger, and still am today (I'm still only 14). I was forced to grow up a lot quicker than usual living in my house. I am definitely depressed, have anxiety disorder, and...

    If I have just built up anger

    and have never truly released it then how should I release My anger without disturbing anyone around me. And no, I do not consider meditation a way to relieve me of anger. Stress, not anger.

    I keep having truly awful nightmares!

    For a while I thought the phase of bad dreams was over, but it's come back with a vengeance. Some nights I don't want to go to sleep, because I'm afraid I'll see or experience something terrifying. It hadn't occurred for a few nights, and I'm hoping that's the end of it! But...

    A Sad Way to Live

     Well, when **** makes you cry, you know something's wrong. I really have no story, as I have been depressed for several years, and I don't really know of anything interesting to tell a story about. Every day I hope for something to happen to improve my life, something...

    I can absolutely destroy you

    and then find out you tried to hurt me and then make you feel 500% worse and make you feel sorry when in reality it was my fault the entire time and I never feel bad about it.

    I want my life to be similar to fantasy books.

    It's not so much that I live in a fantasy. It's more that I crave adventure, crave something completely out of the ordinary happening. This has even gotten to a point where it really upsets me that my life is normal and that I'm just one of billions of normal people. It hurts...

    and it's not getting any better. It seems to be affecting when I'm not alone. I used to be able to handle when other people are around but now I just get irritated. I'm going to a counselor to see if they can help. I really want my high self esteem back. I want pure joy again
